According to the NY Daily News, the Charleston Church where nine people were killed in a racist’s rampage is going to re-open Sunday, congregation members said.

“Mother” Emanuel AME Church will open for Sunday school at 8:30 a.m. and a service at 9 a.m., parishioner Cassie Watson told the Associated Press.

It was not immediately clear how many people were expected to attend on Sunday, although thousands flocked to vigils throughout the week.

Rose Mary Singleton, whose aunt Ethel Lance was killed in suspected shooter Dylann Roof’s massacre, said she may have to hold off on attending services at the church she’s gone to for more than 50 years.

“For me, it will be very hard to walk into that church,” Singleton told the Post and Courier. “You want to go back, but your heart tells you it will be so difficult.”

A cleaning crew finished scrubbing the remnants of Wednesday night’s bloodbath Saturday, allowing about a dozen people to enter through a side door to pay their respects in an emotional meeting as people paid tribute at memorials outside.

“They did a good job cleaning it up,” parishioner Harold Washington said. “There were a few bullet holes around but…they cut them out so you don’t see the actual holes.”

Washington expects Sunday’s service to be “a touching moment – a lot of crying, hugging.”

Real Talk – An Emotional Jon Stewart Drops the Comedy to Talk Charleston: ‘We Still Won’t Do Jackshit’

3

Jon Stewart apologized to his audience tonight for not having any jokes for them, as he just dropped the comedy to get serious about Charleston. He said, “I honestly have nothing, other than just sadness.”


“By acknowledging it,” Stewart pointed out, “by staring into that and seeing it for what it is, we still won’t do jackshit. Yeah, that’s us. That’s the part that blows my mind.”

He contrasted how the U.S. does whatever it can to protect everyone from foreign threats, but has an “eh, what are you gonna do?” attitude to domestic threats.

Stewart brought up the racial wounds being opened in Charleston, especially invoking how South Carolina still flies the Confederate flag and has roads named for Confederate generals.

He sarcastically added, “And the white guy’s the one who feels like his country’s being taken away from him.”

Mike Rowe’s thoughts on why we are failing the American people – What are your thoughts? Is he right?

On Sunday, Rowe posted a letter from one Craig P. who complained about Rowe’s “tiresome” work ethic “harping,” filling the note with stereotypes and even calling Rowe’s “Sweat Pledge” “silly” and his whole deal “right-wing propaganda”:

Hey Mike

Your constant harping on “work ethic” is growing tiresome. Just because someone’s poor doesn’t mean they’re lazy. The unemployed want to work! And many of those who can’t find work today, didn’t have the benefit of growing up with parents like yours. How can you expect someone with no role model to qualify for one of your scholarships or sign your silly “Sweat Pledge?” Rather than accusing people of not having a work-ethic, why not drop the right-wing propaganda and help them develop one?

Craig P.

After setting Craig straight about the blame Democrats and Republicans share in the “never-ending dance that gets more contorted by the day” regarding sociopolitical name-calling, Rowe dug into the problem that always seems to get ignored along the way.

“No one said a word about the millions of jobs that American companies are struggling to fill right now,” he wrote.

Rowe then offered reasons why, namely what he sees simply as many people’s desire to not work, if “given the choice,” and the huge dearth of “soft skills.”

“That’s a polite way of saying that many applicants don’t tuck their shirts in, or pull their pants up, or look you in the eye, or say things like ‘please’ and ‘thank you,’” he wrote. “… this is a national crisis. We’re churning out a generation of poorly educated people with no skill, no ambition, no guidance, and no realistic expectations of what it means to go to work.”

“I don’t focus on groups. I focus on individuals who are eager to do whatever it takes to get started. People willing to retool, retrain, and relocate. That doesn’t mean I have no empathy for those less motivated. It just means I’m more inclined to subsidize the cost of training for those who are. That shouldn’t be a partisan position, but if it is, I guess I’ll just have to live with it.”

What are your thoughts on Mike’s response? Is he right? How can we solve this problem?
